Lest other, less experienced, readers get the impression that it is that
simple let me just provide this pointer:
To write a program which will work (properly) in an OTP compliant system,
you must receive and handle a number of system messages. Without OTP
compliance you have no supervision, debugging, release handling, observer
and I don't know what else. You are free to do so but I wouldn't recommend
this route for anyone else who hasn't mastered the environment.
